ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
If you would like to hear your parrot, or other exotic bird, whistle musical tunes this is the CD for you!

About the artist:

Robert Stemmons began whistling at five. When legendary whistler Fred Lowery performed at his school in 1969, he was mesmerized and inspired. It was then he realized whistling is an excellent performing art.

Over the next twenty years, Robert worked hard, perfecting his instrument and teaching himself techniques, which would include vibrato, staccato, tremolo, warbling, harmony warbling, trilling, two-note harmony, and more.

Practicing for hours a day he additionally learned to make realistic bird sounds, including the sparrow, robin, cardinal, mourning dove, whippoorwill, screech owl, meadowlark, killdeer, blue jay, and raven. These are now trademarks of his concerts.

One afternoon in 1994, he was "whistling while he worked" in a school and was overheard by the music teacher. She asked him to perform as a guest in an upcoming show. In his first real performance, Robert did a blues number. The enthusiastic response received from that flagship performance encouraged him to follow his dream.

Robert has received commendation from the Governor of Oklahoma where he presently lives. In May 1997, he began receiving concert requests. Robert's whistling has taken him through 45 states and 4 provinces. In less than 12 years "The Whistler" has presented over 2,000 whistling concerts. Currently Robert performs with Cirque du Soleil in their touring production "Corteo".

About the album:

The Whistler's Whistling Workout for Birds Volume 3 contains a wide variety of music whistled by a true virtuoso. There is something for everybody and the versatility of whistling as a musical instrument is remarkably displayed. All this in the best learning format ever designed for training birds to whistle! No wonder bird owners agree that these are the finest bird training recordings on the market today.

Note: Of course we cannot guarantee that all birds will learn to whistle well but we believe these CDs will give your bird the very best chance available!

Snap Snap
Due to this delightful disc, I now awaken almost every morning to live performances of The Addams Family. The house vocalist likes to contribute a jazz improvisation or two of his own, and he nearly always adds his own special “snap snap!” effect at the right spots. I’m tickled and amused that the Whistling Workout for Birds has worked so well for us. Henry the African Grey sends his gratitude for the lessons and the inspiration!
